Wine estates on this Route

Kanonkop

Situated just below the Simonsberg Mountains where they cultivate some of South Africa’s highest quality wines, Kanonkop is a fourth generation family estate currently in the hands of Paul & Johann Krige. Nestled in the Simonsberg area, also known as the “red wine bowl”, it thus it has a wide variety of red wines including their prestigious Kanonkop Pinotage. Their year round traditional Snoek Braai (fish barbeque) is a culinary delight, but requires a booking of 15 or more people and their summer cheese platters below the oaks is a red wine tasting experience of grand proportions.

Muratie

Hidden away in the Knorhoek Valley in the North of Stellenbosch, Muratie Wine Estate, owned by Rijk Melck and his family is an experience not to be missed. The farm dates back to 1685 and is the epicenter of many colourful stories and characters that have been revived through the naming of their wines. Muratie keeps the tone set just right with the cobwebs on the very old wine bottles and a very cozy setting in their tasting room. The wines at Muratie are truly a great tasting experience.

L’Avenir

L’Avenir Vineyards combine Stellenbosch sunshine with French inspiration to produce wines that capture the everyday sunny essence of the estate with light-hearted flash of French. They focus on producing not only elegant wines but also wines that showcase their unique setting. Two great cornerstones in the South African wine industry would be the Chenin Blanc and also the great South African Pinotage. A big focus of this winery is delicacy and balance, and these qualities are kept in mind throughout the whole experience.
